Missterious....While your points are valid to some degree, I respectfully disagree. In my experience, lust is fleeting, and easy to come by. We can feel lust for a film star (Ryan Gosling & Johnny Depp come to mind) but that doesn't mean we will necessarily like or love them. Lust is superficial. On the other hand...and maybe this is just me...lust doesn't last without the "like". Does that make sense? NO? Don't worry about it. haha! Now, if like and lust stick around together long enough...then comes love. And that's my favorite part of the equation. ;-) Maybe I just said the same thing in different words. LOL WOW...I just noticed this post is almost 3 years old...but I like it, so I'm resurrecting it!
